Lima Memorial Health System is proud to offer antibody testing for COVID-19 (SARS Coronavirus 2 IgG Antibody testing). This testing capability is the next fundamental step in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The first critical step was announced in April as Lima Memorial partnered with Ohio Northern University to offer same-day COVID-19 testing through the highly reliable PCR molecular testing platform.
Lima Memorial Health System and Ohio Northern University have a longstanding clinical affiliation, which accelerated to a whole new level as the two organizations partnered to bring PCR molecular testing for COVID-19 to the greater Lima region. This is the same method being used by the Ohio Department of Health. ONU provided essential equipment to enable Lima Memorial to provide this critical testing.

Beginning Saturday, March 21, our Community Call Center and Community Evaluation Centers will have extended hours of availability.
